OUR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM AND RIGHTS OF CONSCIENCE ARE IN JEOPARDY
In response to the threat against traditional marriage, religious liberty, freedom of conscience, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services “contraceptive mandate”, the U.S. Bishops have called for a “Fortnight for Freedom” since 2012. You are invited to join Catholics and people of faith across America during this 14-day campaign, June 21 – July 4, to pray, fast and make sacrifices for the protection of our religious freedom.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
JOIN US for our Fortnight for Freedom Holy Hour at Saint Vincent de Paul Church. This event will take place on Thursday, June 29th from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Patriotic Music will be played along with Father Andrew Kemberling, V.F. and Debbie Chaves speaking at our event.
PRAY DAILY anywhere on your own from June 21st to July 4th!
Prayer for Religious Freedom:
O God our Creator, Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society. We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. Give us the strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened; give us courage in making our voices heard on behalf of the rights of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith. Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome— for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us— this great land will always be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
